Alaska Pacific Bancshares, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Annual Earnings for 2012

Friday, March 22, 2013 2:03 PM


Alaska Pacific Bancshares, Inc. (OTCBB:AKPB) (“Company”), the parent company of Alaska Pacific Bank (“Bank”), today reported net income available to common shareholders of $244,000, or $0.33 per diluted common share, for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012, as compared to net income available to common shareholders of $157,000, or $0.22 per diluted common share for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Net income available to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2012, was $166,000, or $0.22 per diluted common share, compared to net income available to common shareholders of $631,000, or $0.87 per diluted common share for 2011.

“We were very pleased to see the momentum shift in our mortgage banking operations during the fourth quarter of 2012,” stated Craig Dahl, President & CEO. “Our mortgage banking activity is a key component of our income and there is no doubt that it took us longer than expected to get this segment of our business back to full performance after losing key personnel in 2011. Our total noninterest income for 2012 exceeded our 2011 levels primarily because of a $284,000 increase in mortgage banking income and an $85,000 increase in service charges. However, we offset these increases with higher compensation of $299,000 along with legal/professional of $100,000, premise/equipment of $100,000, and loss on foreclosed real estate of $145,000; all resulting in our income for 2012 being $462,000 lower than 2011. The financial results do not reflect the progress the Bank has made in getting out from under all regulatory restrictions and ensuring compliance with the mountain of new regulations; but the fact remains that loan demand is strong, deposits are up, the Bank is fully staffed and we are operating in a region whose economy is healthy and growing stronger. I am privileged to have a very committed team of officers and employees, an engaged board of directors, and a loyal customer base that speaks to our nearly 78 years of service to the region.”

The provision for loan losses was $60,000 for both the quarter ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The allowance for loan losses at December 31, 2012 was $1.9 million, representing 1.26% of total loans outstanding. Total non-accrual loans were $5.7 million at December 31, 2012 compared with $5.6 million at September 30, 2012 and $2.6 million at December 31, 2011. In addition, the Bank’s real estate owned and repossessed assets were $344,000 at December 31, 2012 compared with $390,000 at September 30, 2012 and $880,000 at December 31, 2011. There was $39,000 in net loan charge offs for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 compared with $49,000 in net loan charge offs for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and $234,000 in net loan charge offs for the quarter ended December 31, 2011.

Net interest income increased $8,000, or (0.4%) to $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $2.0 million for the comparable quarter of 2011 reflecting primarily an increase in the Bank’s average loan portfolio offset with the continued low interest rate environment. Net interest margin on average interest-earning assets for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 4.58% compared with 4.74% in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Loans (excluding loans held for sale and before the allowance for loan losses) were $148.4 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of $2.1 million, or 1.4% from $150.5 million at September 30, 2012, and an increase of $600,000, or 0.4% from $147.8 million at December 31, 2011. Deposits at December 31, 2012, were $156.5 million, a $1.1 million, or 0.7% increase from $155.4 million at September 30, 2012, and a $9.3 million, or 6.3% increase from $147.2 million at December 31, 2011.

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2012, including gain on sale of loans, increased $370,000, or 152.2% to $613,000 from $243,000 for the fourth quarter of 2011. Gain on sale of loans increased $284,000 to $570,000 for the year ended December 31, 2012 from $286,000 for fiscal 2011 as a result of an increase in the production of one-to-four family mortgage loans. Excluding mortgage banking income, noninterest income increased $112,000, or 10.0%, to $1.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared with $1.1 million for fiscal 2011. The increase is primarily in mortgage servicing income due to the fair value adjustment to mortgage servicing rights net of originations and disposals of $(35,000) in 2012 compared with $(144,000) in 2011.

Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased $36,000, or 1.7%, to $2.2 million from $2.1 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and increased $242,000, or 12.5%, from the quarter ended December 31, 2011. Noninterest expense of $8.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased $780,000, or 9.8%, from $8.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The net increase in expense is attributable to higher compensation and benefit costs, higher real estate owned and repossessed asset expense, and other expenses.
